Dear Mark, 

When you first asked me to be your wife all I saw was a lifetime full of cute babies, home cooked meals, decorating and adventure. I was so naive to everything. I was so head over heels in love for you and I couldn't imagine loving you anymore. Then we got married and our wedding day was full of so much pure joy I knew nothing could top this! But then we had Jax + I fell in love with you all over again. The way you treasured me and made me feel so loved after I gave birth was nothing short of amazing. You love me so well, no one can do what you do for my heart and my soul. I can never find the words to tell you how much I appreciate you. You are generous, loving, kind and compassionate. You put me above all else and die to your self every day so you can better serve me as my husband, my friend and my partner in this crazy thing called life. There is nothing I can't tell you and nothing I don't want to share with you. We know full well that there was so much that was meant to tear us apart but we only came out on top of it all, learning more about each other and about ourselves. But its not always easy. Thank you for putting up with my weird, crazy and sometimes annoying ways. Thank you for encouraging me to become a better version of myself everyday. Thank you for stopping to kiss me randomly throughout our days. You keep me grounded and remembering what is important. I love you more than the day you asked me to spend forever with you. I love you more than I did the day I married you almost two years ago. I love you more than the day I saw you become a dad. I love you more than the day we found out our sons life would be cut far too short. God picked you, hand placed you into my life at the exact moment He did because He knew I needed you as my husband. You reassure me when I am not sure of myself and you wipe every tear that falls from my eyes. You have helped me more than you know and I know we can get through anything because you are my person. Someone told me once that marriage is falling in love multiple times but with the same person and that couldn't be more accurate. Thank you for being you. The handsome, amazing and loving man you are. Thank you for not caring that the laundry is rarely done, the house is not clean always & that we eat pizza or takeout more than I'd like to admit. Being your wife is not the glamorous "house wife" role I dreamed of, it is SO much more than that. Because its real, its messy and its broken AND because its with you, its better than any dream I ever had. I love you forever + always.

xoxo, your wifey.

Happy October loves! 
I'm in love with the cooler temps we have been getting. Ive put away my sandals and pulled out all my boots + booties. Sweaters are my favorite part of the dropping temperatures though + this one is amazing! its super comfy and the back is different then anything I own. I will link below where everything I'm wearing is from. 
I hope you all had a great weekend and I pray that your upcoming week is awesome too! God can do such amazing things, if you really pray for Him to open your eyes this week I bet you'll see such beauty in the mundane. I know what its like to feel stuck in a rut or a routine + you are wondering when something "great" is going to happen. I promise you, God is working BIG things in your life but showing you in small ways. 
xoxo, tori.

Happy fall y'all! 
I have been waiting a reeeaaalllly long time to say that. Now that its officially my favorite time of year I thought I would share with you why I love it so much. Yes, it has something to do with pumpkin [my fav flavor] and all the festivities but it also has to do with the clothes. Surprise, surprise right? But seriously you can do so many fun things with your wardrobe in the fall or you can choose to keep it simple. 
When August hits I try to start thinking fall when I purchase things for my closet. Some of my favorite trends are so "in" right now and I'm pretty excited. Overalls, fringe, wide legged pants and we can't forget the vests! I am going to take you through my fall wardrobe this season and help you to make the most out of what you have that way you don't have to buy all new clothes every year. Buy things that are practical and will last you a long time and when you're buying things that are trendy, make sure you aren't spending too much money just in case you could do without it next year. 
Are you ready? Because I am SO excited. I want you guys to see how I put together outfits and how I figure out what I'm going to wear. Brace yourselves because my closet isn't organized [hello, i'm a hot mess remember?] and I really love clothes. 
I decided to share this out first because it is something that is "mom friendly". I seriously used to think this overall trend was so hideous until I saw it done right [via pinterest] and I was all heart eyed over it! We went apple picking and it was the perfect outfit to be comfy and cute at the same time. ps I got these overalls at Target for like $25.

Have a happy Sunday loves!
xoxo, Tori
